SMC Ships Two New Barricade VPN Broadband RoutersNew Barricade routers create secure Virtual Private Networking tunnels (August 17, 2004)
SMC Networks (www.smc.com), leading provider of networking solutions for the SMB/e and all the way home, will begin shipping two new additions to its Barricade line of secure Broadband routers: the Barricade VPN 4-Port Broadband Router (SMCBR14VPN), and the Barricade VPN 8-port Broadband Router (SMCBR18VPN) in late-August. These new Barricade VPN Broadband Routers carry MSRPs of $99.99 and $129.99, respectively.
The new Barricade VPN Broadband routers allow users to create secure Virtual Private Networking tunnels to share files, Internet connections and even play multi-computer games- making the products perfect for telecommuters, SMB and home users alike. Users are able to create secure VPN connections over the Internet and share them with multiple computers through use of the built-in VPN functionality. Ideal as the centerpiece for a small business network the Barricade VPN allows users to create secure VPN tunnel connections to a corporate network from a home or remote office location. Barricade VPN routers have both an integrated VPN Server and VPN client to support multiple VPN connections using IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP protocols.
For network protection, the routers come with an Advanced SPI Firewall to protect computers from DoS (Denial of Service) and other malicious attacks like Ping of Death, SYN Flood, Land Attacks, and IP Spoofing. To complement this advanced firewall, the Barricade VPN also supports SNMP, static routing, DMZ hosting, port forwarding, system logging, email alerts, and two user accounts to make management easy and flexible. Each Barricade VPN also has a 10/100Mbps WAN port for use with high-speed Internet connections as well as a COM port for use with an external dial-up or ISDN modem, to employ either as the main Internet connection or as a fail-over if the broadband cable or DSL service goes down.
The SMCBR14VPN Barricade VPN Router incorporates a 4-Port 10/100Mbps Auto-Sensing Switch to connect wired computers or additional switches, so the network grows easily; the SMCBR18VPN has an integrated 8-port 10/100 Auto-sensing switch.
